History

18TH CENTURY

Built in the 18th century by a Bordeaux squire who was well connected with the court of the Sun King, the estate remained in the family of the Marquis de Mons for 300 years until the arrival of Baron Bich, a visionary industrialist, who purchased the property in 1978.

1994

After the death of Baron Bich in 1994, the shareholding remained in the family. The board is chaired today by Pauline Bich Chandon-Moët, assisted by her husband, Philippe Chandon-Moët.

2005

Under the impetus of Pauline Chandon-Moët, the estate gained a new lease of life. The vineyard was restructured and replanted, the vine-growing methods revised, the cellars modernised and the vats accordingly adapted.

2012

In 2012, the efforts put in were rewarded: Ferrand was promoted to Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, a just reward for the quality of its universally acclaimed wines. The promotion helped shine a spotlight on an estate that had succeeded in enhancing its architectural heritage and skilfully developing the estate for the future benefit of wine lovers.

2019

It was now just a question of getting the estate ready to welcome those fortunate wine lovers and for them to discover the estate’s new attractive and poetic features. Thus in 2019, after almost 2 years of restoration work, Ferrand was ready to receive visitors with warmth and hospitality while revealing to them an awe-inspiring historic yet contemporary wine estate.
